If you won’t have a car during the conference, Lyft and Uber are options for getting around Long Beach.  You may also want to consider using the city’s public transportation system, Long Beach Transit or the Long Beach Yellow Cab.

Transportation to the Opening Reception

To get to the Queen Mary from the Hilton, you have a few options:

Long Beach Passport - this is a free bus service that travels from Downtown Long Beach to the Queen Mary. The closest stop is a half mile/10 minute walk down Ocean Blvd to Pine Ave. It runs approximately every 15 minutes until 8pm and then every 30 minutes. Find the schedule and map here.

Ride share (Lyft or Uber) - A Lyft or Uber from the Hilton to the Queen Mary is likely the most economical option after the Passport. And it’s even cheaper if you share the ride/split the cost with other attendees!

Drive and park at the Queen Mary - If you have your car and would prefer to drive, it’s a quick 2.4 mile/10 minute drive. Self parking is $18/per car. Valet is $27/per car.
